Unfortunately I need a sympathy card this week for a sudden death in my family. I saw Stacey's colors for her Curtain Call Color Challenge this week and knew I could make them work for a sympathy card. The colors are Kraft, Whisper White, Pretty in Pink and Basic Black. (I used Very Vanilla instead of Whisper White...hope that is ok!)
Here is what I came up with. I used a sneak peak stamp set from the Summer Mini catalog called Elements of Style as the main image on the card and stamped it using Black StazOn onto watercolor paper. I then used my Pretty in Pink marker to highlight the flowers and then went over them with my Aqua Painter. I then colored in the leaves and added depth to the flowers and the paper using my Aqua Painter and Sahara Sand ink (which I consider to be the Kraft colored ink).
Next I distressed the edges of the all the card stock on the card by using Sahara Sand ink, the distressing tool and by curling back some of the card stock.
I stamped the the sentiment "so very sorry" from the stamp set Three Little Words onto a piece of watercolor paper that I punched out using the Designer Label punch and then distressed it as well. I added a small bow of Very Vanilla Taffeta ribbon, a half pearl from the Pretties Kit and a very light misting of Champagne Mist shimmer spray to the image to finish the card off.
I love the way it came out and I hope it brings a little comfort to my Aunt.
